Manually Downgrade Kindle for PC/MAC Since the new kindle kfx DRM has been employed to kindle books from Kindle desktop version 1.25, we only need to downgrade Kindle App to version 1.24 or earlier. The latest kindle version before 1.25 for Kindle for PC 1.24 and kindle for Mac 1.23.

Amazon updated their desktop reading app Kindle for PC and Kindle for Mac to version 1.19, it is a big step as the last major version 1.17 was released several months ago.

The Kindle for PC/Mac 1.19 has three major improvements:

  • Added support for the enhanced typesetting books. The enhanced typesettings engine improves the way Kindle books are formatted.
  • Improved the search functions.
  • Added text-to-speech functions, it only work on books which support TTS functions.

Among all these important new features, the first one is the most important feature, and it’s also the worst new feature in my point of view. Let me explain why.

The enhanced typesettings engine requires the books be downloaded as .kfx extension name. This format of Kindle book is impossible to convert or decrypt (remove DRM).

Update: On 18th, October 2017. The software called Epubor Ultimate makes it possible to remove DRM from KFX books.

You can buy this software with 20% off here:

The KFX books are initially going live on Kindle Paperwhite 2 and later generations. In old days, if a book is downloaded as .kfx format in our Kindle eReaders, we can download them to computer with Kindle for PC/Mac reading app as .azw format, then easily remove DRM from them.

From now on, if our Kindle is Paperwhite 2 and later generations, we will not be able to remove DRM anymore, then we won’t be able to convert to print them anymore.

In this situation, if we still need to remove DRM, we have two solutions:

  1. Find a Kindle which is no later than Paperwhite 1. The books downloaded to Kindle Paperwhite 1 and previous generations are .azw3, we can easily decrypt them with Kindle Serial Number.
  2. Download old version of Kindle for PC/Mac, I would recommend version 1.17.

Why 1.17? Amazon finally would stop support for old version of Kindle desktop reading apps. Now Amazon has already abandoned version 1.14. As the most recent old version, 1.17 can last more days.

There is a hot discussion thread on MobileRead forum about the new version of Kindle desktop reading app and the coming DRM removing jeopardy. Most of eBook fans are holding negative views about the future of DRM removing, while some people think there definitely will be a way to crack the .kfx book in the future.

However, you can also check that thread and also share your thoughts about this issue.
